So I know how most of you feel about Aldo around here.. and that's totally fine with me, but I'd prefer some objectivity here and not another bash fest. Anyways, having said that, I just want to premise this by saying that I actually admire the style of some of their shoes. They have a slim,sleek,modern look to them that can work very well with a nice pair of slim jeans and slim dress pants in a casual setting. I've also come to realize that after wearing them for about 3 weeks, a pair I recently bought already look very worn. This has bothered me. So.. in my self admitted ignorance and humility I'd like to inquire as to anyone's opinion on possible higher quality alternatives within the $100-$200 range. I understand Allen Edmonds makes high quality shoes with a significant return on investment over the lifespan of the shoe, but I find that Allen Edmonds only has a limited shoe styling in terms of color and applicable shades beyond a suit setting. I work at a bank and have a business casual dress style, and also dress up slim denim with sleek dress shoes as well. So it's important for me to find shoe types that can transfer from dress pants, chinos, to denim and a night out as well. Aldo seems to have shoes that can do that and look pretty good, but as we all know, the quality is pretty shit. Any suggestions? Much appreciated.
